Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique and ground-breaking book is the result of 15 years research and synthesises over 800 meta-analyses on the influences on achievement in school-aged students. It builds a story about the power of teachers, feedback, and a model of learning and understanding. The research involves many millions of students and represents the largest ever evidence based research into what actually works in schools to improve learning. Areas covered include the influence of the student, home, school, curricula, teacher, and teaching strategies. A model of teaching and learning is developed based on the notion of visible teaching and visible learning.

A major message is that what works best for students is similar to what works best for teachers an attention to setting challenging learning intentions, being clear about what success means, and an attention to learning strategies for developing conceptual understanding about what teachers and students know and understand.

Although the current evidence based fad has turned into a debate about test scores, this book is about using evidence to build and defend a model of teaching and learning. A major contribution is a fascinating benchmark/dashboard for comparing many innovations in teaching and schools.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on some 15 years of research and based on 50,000-plus studies and many millions of students, Hattie's (education, U. of Auckland, New Zealand) evidence-based text synthesizes some 800 meta-analyses about how elements of the classroom setting influence achievement in school-aged students. The text considers several key areas including the student, home, curricula, teacher, and teaching strategies; it does not examine areas that cannot be influenced by schools, such as class, poverty, resources in families, health in families, and nutrition. Hattie's major goal is not to criticize beliefs and conceptions held by teachers, but rather to examine a broad range of classroom teaching strategies to develop a barometer of what works best, which can be used to establish guidelines for achieving successful student outcomes.
